Coach Kelly will officially announce the class at a 3:00 press conference and the BCI staff will be on hand to provide our members with special interviews to be posted on Wednesday night and during the day on Thursday.
Here is the class as Bearcat Insiders recruiting analyst Dave Berk will breakdown the class from top to bottom with Tim Adams and Doug Goodwin taking notes so no stone is left unturned.
Here is how Dave Berk has the class looking as of Wednesday morning.
Bearcats head coach Brian Kelly keep true to his beliefs and signed an class loaded with offensive talent. With a lack of receivers Kelly attacked the country looking for those talented enough to fit into his offensive scheme. The end results should have 15 of 22 recruits taking the field on the offensive side of the football. Here is the offensive breakdown.
Chazz Anderson –
Zach Collaros –
You can use one word to describe Zach Collaros "Winner" is the only way the young man from Division Three understands. He's gone 30-0 the past two seasons with two state championships to show for it.
Tahree McQueen –
Athlete that could line up at several positions for the Bearcats in the future seasons to come. A high school quarterback (dual-threat) McQueen can run, pass and catch the ball in the future.
Frank Becker –
Converted defensive lineman who will look to man a guard or center spot
in the future. Comes from a good program and has played against some of the best
Blake McCronskey –
Player who will have the chance to excel in the future under Coach Quinn. Has good size and ability.
Alex Hoffman –
Earned the highest ranking for offensive linemen in his home state. Lack of camps keep many from knowing him, but the body of work turned in during his senior season saw several Big Ten and other BCS teams come calling.
T.J. Franklin –
Another player who will fit in well with Coach Quinn and his style. Has good athletic ability and should develop into a solid college player.
Craig Parmenter –
Saw many BCS teams take hard looks and make offers with the Bearcats new staff able to secure his commitment. Should be a guard during his college career.
O.J. Woodard –
Playmaker and considered one of the top players in
Tomaz Hilton –
Used his senior year to earn the interest of several programs. Many feel his future is bright in the Bearcats offense.
Drew Frey –
A player from the country who the Bearcats staff saw the same things we at Bearcat Insider saw. Very athletic with speed and size, will need a little adjustment but is a hard worker with a very bright future.
Adrien Robinson –
One if not the top recruit in this class. Great size and athletic ability makes Robinson a major get for Brian Kelly. Saw many BCS programs recruit him hard and the Bearcats won out allowing Robinson to play the position he wants. National ranking is as a tight end, but has the ability to be a big-play receiver.
Armon Binns –
Very athletic prospect that will only get better in the years to come, played quarterback in high school but has legit size and speed to excel in the Bearcats offense.
John Hughes –
Great looking athlete many programs backed away from for talked about academic issues. Bearcats staff must feel he's got things inline and is a major get. Could also play on the defensive side of the ball.
Montez Patterson –
Patterson is like many inner city prospects not getting much talk or respect. But look out, Patterson has the physical tools to be a good one.
Scott Johnson –
Great athlete with super speed and size. While he may lack the height many look for, his athletic ability and speed in a very compact body make his a major threat on the field. Could play on both sides of the ball and excel. Very underrated!
Deon Reed –
Reed comes from a very small program and not much is known, but that didn't stop several BCS program for making a late run in the last two weeks leading up to signing day. Has great speed.
Alex Delisi –
Another hardnosed football player from
Ricardo Thompson –
Thompson is a major get for the Bearcats staff. While he committed to
Randy Martinez –
Rob Trigg –
Trigg plays for one of
